Rumors of a Confederate Invasion which would include the burning of Liberty and a raid on Fort Leavenworth resulted in the fortifying of this hill in April, 1862. Doors from nearby homes were used to line the trench across the hill. This marker is placed where one of three cannons was positioned. The invasion never materialized and the trenches were abandoned in the fall of 1862.

At this marker let us pray for the day that men and women will "hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruninghooks" (Isaiah 2:4).
